Brightening The Forks Market!

Posted on Apr 12, 2024 by The Forks Market

The Forks is dedicated to cultivating vibrant and inclusive public spaces throughout the site. We're always on the lookout for ways to enrich perspectives and enhance experiences by adding color, light, and vibrancy to the spaces around the site through art and other creative endeavors.

With each new season, fresh viewpoints emerge, offering visitors of The Forks a renewed sense of wonder. Recently, a slew of innovative projects have injected bursts of colour into the walls of The Market, breathing new life into its spaces.

This spring, a captivating public art installation graced the north aisle of The Market. This collaborative piece, titled "La rivyar kii-pimichiwan," meaning "the river flows along," was brought to life by local artists Nadya Crossman-Serb and Jan Castillo.
